A bit late…
Via The Hill:
The Commission on Presidential Debates issued a one-sentence statement Friday admitting “issues” with Donald Trump’s audio in this cycle’s first debate Monday.
“Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the statement read.
Trump argued after the debate that his microphone was defective, which rival Hillary Clinton dismissed as an excuse of someone who did poorly.
Trump told reporters immediately following the debate that event organizers “gave me a defective mic” that he said affected the audio inside the Hofstra University venue.
“Did you notice that?” he asked a reporter immediately after the debate. “My mic was defective within the room.”
“Was that on purpose?” Trump asked.
